Fan since the first album, but this is the first one I’m not buying. I don’t think the songs, the riffs or the vocal melodies have that quintessential Stryper feel and it just feels like a generic hard rock album. Stryper were always melodic hard rock and I’m struggling to find lasting melodies on the songs. Plus the chorus to Take It To The Cross is genuinely the worst chrous I’ve heard!

FM and Testament would be my two! Opposite ends of the spectrum, but never let me down yet and I can’t get enough of either of them!! Whereas some bands I love I’ll skip certain songs or not play certain albums, I can put anything on by these two, sit back and know I’m in for a cracking listen! Paul

I second Rocknut!! Huge Bonfire fan here. Not a fan of this sadly! The accent really puts me off. Just personal taste! Paul

Love FM and really liking this. Something a bit different. More like Takin’ It To The Streets era. The vocal melody reminds me of Abracadabra by the Steve Miller Band! Paul

Yeah! I’m with Rocknut, the guy is un-watchable! Was interested in that too, but just can’t watch him for that amount of time!! Paul

XYZ, great band, great song. For me though, I would have to go with 'I'll See You In My Dreams' by Giant. If any of the 'big' bands of the genre at that time had released that song, it would have been a worldwide hit. While it did get some traction, it should have made Giant a household name. Paul

As much as I've loved the band and they've constantly been one of my favourite top 2 bands since around 1979, in the cold light of day, every time I think of the name 'Def Leppard', it just makes me go, 'Really??'. A recent one would be 'Tokyo Motor Fist'. Great music, but just no with that name Paul

Quite agree!! As a bass player I love Cliff Burton and John Myung, but two of my favourite bass players are Merv Goldsworthy and Rick Savage. I love the fluidity in their playing. They both lock in to the groove, hold the beat and then throw in a little fill here and there that always complements, never ‘Oh listen to me’! Paul

Very good live band too when I saw them with FM and Romeo’s Daughter a couple of years ago in Manchester. Singer came out looking like a football hooligan and launched in to the highest in tune scream I’ve heard in years. Very impressive! Paul

Yes Terry , but you’re putting ’your’ belief system on me. I don’t believe any of it is true. It’s just a bunch of made up stories and ‘one man’s’ opinion to me. You believe that, great, I have absolutely no issue with that whatsoever. What I do have a problem with is religious people constantly saying, ‘Yes, but wait until you die and meet him’. I’m not going to meet a made

Oh Terry!!!! I don't believe in him, so I'm not going to meet him. Funny how religious always people say, you'll repent when you meet him! No I won't as to me he is about as real as Deadpool! Although Deadpool is probably more relevant to me than god is!! Both have a book confirming who they are! Doesnt make Deadpool real though!! To me it's just made up stories, good vs evil. Don't believe in

Loved Stryper for 34 years but that chorus is just laughable shit. It sounds like a fucking witch is screaming it. I think this chorus is even worse than Blue Bleeds Through from Michael Sweet’s Truth album!! I don’t need to listen to this song ever again!! Paul

Not dissimilar to some of the euro cheesy shit coming out of Sweden. If this was a new young band, some on here would be lauding them as the new saviours of AOR!! Think it’s cack personally!! Paul

I've loved FM for 32 years now and they have never let me down. Loving the Bryan Adams/Wildlife vibe in this one. Can't wait for the album and getting my tickets for Manchester tomorrow! Paul

I would have to go with:- 1) Robin McAuley - just love his voice. Rich warm tone that, to me, has suited everything he’s done. 2) Gary Barden - the original voice of the classics 3) Graham Bonnet - loved him in Rainbow, never took to the MSG songs he sung Paul

FM - Atomic Generation. FM haven’t let me down in 30 years and I don’t think they’ll start now. Really stoked for this release. Also looking forward to the re-mastered The Gathering album from Testament. Be good to see what they have done with this sonically . Paul

I was playing New Jersey the other day. Full of energy and attitude and then this housewife shit!! Sambora needs to get his act together, straighten out and re-join and start making some magic again.Sounds like they've lost the hunger and are just happy to re-hash the same song idea over and over. And this coming from someone who used to be the biggest Bon Jovi nut! Paul

Absolute travesty that Testament have been chosen as openers below Lamb Of God and Behemoth! They should be on before Anthrax! Paul

Long time Whitesnake fan since the first album. I guess I was in the minority that thought the material written by Doug Aldrich, as much as I have liked him in other bands, was strictly second rate 1987 rip offs. It lacked a new identity to me that someone like Doug should bring to the table. It was like his remit was to write Sykes type riffs. It came off as a second rate Whitesnake. I'm look

So, from the 'Hundreds of hours of footage recorded', you get ONE hour of footage that contains THREE songs. Plus, it will only be sent out once all 500 have been sold, and they want 500 dollars for each one?? I think the phrase 'Fuck the fuck off' was invented for purely this scenario!! Paul

Looks like Marq Torien is trying to be Glenn Hughes whilst wearing Stephen Pearcy's face. Strictly a Vauxhall Conference level band!! Paul
